    Phoronix: I Had A Tough Time Deciding What GPU To Use On My Main Fedora Linux Workstation

    This week I've been working on transitioning my main production workstation to Fedora 26, but I had a really tough time this cycle deciding which graphics card to use, even with having dozens at my disposal...

    Conclusion: Ryzen needs so bad integrated graphics

    Btw, I also have Fedora 25 with NVIDIA binary in my living room. Almost each time a kernel update is out, I have to reconfigure it...

      Yes indeed. I installed a headless Ryzen system last week. Had to find a GPU to use in it; ended up tearing apart an old dusty system, and taking out a friggin' ATI X700 to install it. Worked out of the box.

        I gave up waiting for the HDMI audio fix, and bought a $2 cable to run a traditional speaker connection to my monitor. It works fine.

          That's a good topic Michael: NVIDIA card with proprietary driver or AMD card with free driver. I use an old AMD HD 6870, and really, I don't known what to choose if I need to change.
          As you said, both have flaws. I hope it would be better one day...

            Using a HD7750 to drive a 4k TV with HDMI audio. Didn't you get one as a surprise gift once?

              I'm going to get my popcorn now and watch you ripped to shreds for using what works for you instead of going sjw.

                Yea, I'd have gone with the older Radeon option here. They are still plenty capable of driving 4K, and since you don't need anything high-end, you shouldn't care about energy efficiency anyway.

                  So, unfortunately, this time around I couldn't pop in a AMD Polaris card or so and keep my Fedora 26 box happy for my main production purposes due to DC not being mainline yet.
                  Polaris does not need new DC code. Using RX580 here just fine.
